    Default for all those who service the 3.0 themselves

    if your like me and service the beast yourself you will no doubt be miffed at the fact that the oil filter on these motors are so overpriced

    the best prie i had found was eurocarparts ( although it was a saab filter) was around the £13 mark

    notice a thread the other day that mentioned another website that was like ECP , the website was www.carparts4less.co.uk

    and viola £8.52 delivered

    http://www.carparts4less.co.uk/oil-filter

    thought you might find it helpful i did

    The funny thing is car parts 4 less is euro car parts. Why not just charge the lower price on the original website, just trying to con really.

    i think carparts4less sprang up as their ebay trading name and they're hanging onto the high prices instore as if you go in you are obviously in a hurry and will pay the price they ask.

    As with all things, shop around
    They may be cheap for the oil filter, but they are way off the mark for front pads and discs (which I will need within the next few weeks)

    Also, when I entered my vehicle the specification for the parts was INCORRECT

    The front discs come up as 302mm, but I need 314mm
    The part even says "2005 3.0"
    Equally, why would someone want just one disc!
    A full set of front pads and discs came in at £101.40
    Same (OE) parts from dealership, £81.00 / £63.00 (after discount)

    Equally, I could not find a charcoal Pollen Filter

    Default Service Oil

    Hi, there's always a lot of opinions on engine oil type and grade.
    What oil do you all prefer for the 3.0 V6 as i think it actually needs 7.2 litres, so will need 2 X 5 litres.
    Looks like a fairly expensive oil change
